Sponsored Post: A Visit To #ChocolateHeaven With Roger Federer And Lindsey Vonn

It is always refreshing to learn about sports figures who are always up for new challenges. It has recently been revealed by Swiss chocolate brand Lindt, that tennis champ Roger Federer and ski champ Lindsey Vonn were up to a little secret challenge of their own.

Back in October of 2013, Federer, who is a very active social media user, posted to his Twitter account asking for an athlete to compete against him in any other sport. Vonn, also equally active on social media, responded to his request and said that she would ski with him if he would play tennis with her.

Fast forward to 2014, when Federer contacted Vonn with the news that the challenge had been revealed. The two athletes were to meet each other to celebrate the opening of Lindt’s newest – and highest, at 3,454m – shop to complete the challenge, which included a little bit of a twist.

The challenge will consist of a tennis match on top of the Jungfraujoch on the Aletsch glacier, against the backdrop of the Bernese Alps! The Jungfraujoch is called ‘The Top of Europe’, so could you even dream of a better place to shop for some authentic Swiss chocolates…I know we can’t! The winner of the challenge would be rewarded with their own taste of #chocolateheaven!

There has been no word yet on whether or not that Vonn will get her rematch with Federer on the ski slopes, but we can certainly see that the competitive spirit and camaraderie between these two is amazing.

I think we can all dream about having our very own #chocolateheaven moments and currently Lindt is urging people to share their moments via their website, Twitter and Facebook page.

Red Lobster Surprises A Widow On Her Wedding Anniversary

(PCM) For 31-years a woman and her husband would celebrate their wedding anniversary with a meal at Red Lobster, however sadly this year was a bit different, but ended with a touching surprise.

Tragically, the woman’s husband passed away in March of this year and in order to help keep the tradition alive, the woman’s daughter volunteered to take her mother to dinner to celebrate the anniversary.

When the waitress asked if the family was celebrating anything special, the woman’s daughter explained the tradition and then they continued on with their meal. The surprise comes when they received the check to pay for their meal and instead received the following note:

Red-Lobster-note

“We are sorry to hear about your husband’s passing, but we appreciate your loyalty in spending 31 years of your anniversary with us. For your appreciation, your meal is on us! We look forward to spending your next anniversary with us!”

The hand-written note was signed “Sincerely, Red Lobster & your server, Taylor.”

A spokesperson for Red Lobster confirmed the incident and released the following statement:

“What Taylor, the server, and Chad, the manager on duty, did demonstrates how our teams live Red Lobster’s core values of genuine caring and hospitality each day,” spokeswoman Erica Ettori said. “All of us at Red Lobster are truly proud of the Columbia team and appreciate their commitment to making every guest’s dining experience a special one. We also extend our wishes to the family who dined with us and look forward to serving them again next year!”
